Amazing pancakes, French toast, crapes everything looked delicious and big portions! I believe this is a chain pancake house and will definitely stop at one again.

Although it looks like a typical chain breakfast place on the inside, it was anything but. The smell of the fresh squeezed OJ when you walked in the door was intoxicating! Four of us had breakfast here, two omelettes (Spinach& Feta, and a Western) and two scrambles. The portions were plentiful, food was all very good (spinach in the omelette... More

Found this place by accident on the way to Chicago.......sure glad we did! Food was excellent, menu had lots of choices and the prices were reasonable. So many things sounded good it was hard to choose. We really enjoyed the food, the staff were all very pleasant, the restaurant was clean, would definitely recommend!

While on vacation, we chose this place for breakfast, not realizing at the time that there was an IHOP right across the street. I like IHOP a lot, but I'm really glad we ate here instead.

Food was excellent, the menu has all kinds of different pancakes from different regions. The food came in great portions, and was very reasonably priced. The staff was great, and very patient while we perused the menu. They joked that I should put my phone down and eat the food before it got cold. Very good natured.

Very nice wait staff. Eggs and bacon good.... Hashbrowns crispy and golden, delicious! Was worried on first entering.. Dining room a bit run down, but the food turned me around! Bathroom was much newer looking than the dining area and very clean! Husband enjoyed the coffee and pancakes!
